She always called him Mr. President not Jack. He refused to kiss her on the lips when they made love. But Mimi Alford, a White House intern from New Jersey, was smitten nonetheless.
She was in the midst of an 18-month affair with the most powerful man in the world, sharing not only John F. Kennedys bed but also some of his darkest and most intimate moments.
In her explosive new tell-all, Once Upon a Secret: My Affair with President John F. Kennedy and Its Aftermath, Alford, now a 69-year-old grandmother and retired New York City church administrator, sets the record straight in searingly candid detail. The book, out Wednesday was bought by The Post at a Manhattan bookstore.
In the summer of 1962, Alford was a slender, golden-haired 19-year-old debutante whose finishing-school polish and blueblood connections had landed her a job in the White House press office

As putrid as this is, I think it’s always better to have a womanizer as POTUS than a HOMOPOTUS.
The news media were completely silent on the subject, but JFK was a womanizer extraordinaire. I have heard from people with family in the administration that he generally had at least two or three women a day. Obviously it must have kept him pretty busy.
Read the report, which seemed to be more about KFK. Just curious how a little unmasjed Newt bash came as a result.

Opps, somehow hit the post key before ready, tried in vain to stop it from going.....
The old media...acessories to the crimes, enablers and cowards.
So he pimped her out? What a gentleman.
Yeah, gives me an understanding of why JFK always complained of back trouble...
Freep-mail me to get on or off my pro-life and Catholic List:
Please ping me to note-worthy Pro-Life or Catholic threads, or other threads of general interest.
I wonder why this woman just didn’t keep her mouth shut...does she really need the money?
Also it was interesting that he said - supposedly - that he’d rather his children were red than dead because just recently we heard that Jackie made the really strange comment that she wanted to die with JFK (by staying in the WH with her husband rather than going to a safe place in the event of a nuclear attack) and so did the children. Hard to imagine she actually said that!
This woman describes this as an affair?
Not so much...it was more a situation when JFK decided on the girl du jour and summoned her.
What I don’t understand is why a 69 year old grandmother would divulge this. Don’t tell me money...I can’t wrap my brain around that.
At some point in life, most people realize that their youthful indiscretions should be left in the past.Even though JFK took advantage of her youth, at some point she had to have thought that things weren’t right. I would hate to be her kids or grandkids.
The whore has no shame...she even wrote a book. Isn’t that nice?
Wasn’t a Newt bash(read my tagline). Added that comment to show amazement that some are concerned with Newt’s (alleged/factual)infidelities when JFK is enshrined in those same minds as some sort of Saint—of course, he was a ‘rat and crossed over the divide nearly 50 years ago. Ever heard the term, “double standard”? IOW, your comment is way off base.
Well, isn’t this all just so precious?
Basically he used her as slut it’s really a disturbing story all around except treated w respect because it’s JFK. And keep in mind she was one of a hundred. At least a hundred.
“...red than dead...”
Yes, I noted that, too. And, this from the man who “faced the Soviet menace/Kruschev down.” Doesn’t quite fit the stories we are fed about the illustrious JFK.
Does the press corps (corpse?) have any members who are not sluts or whores?
Alex...I'll take "Press-ti-tutes and eneMedia" for 500!
LBJ and Hoover were able to lead the coup that killed JFK because most in powerful positions were aware that JFK was trash.
LBJ was going to jail for murder, his ticket out was Elm Street as he squashed that investigation per Barr McClellan, one of LBJ's lawyers.
Hoover of course had files on everybody. Hoover in many respects was the most powerful man on Earth and he was not going to give up his power if JFK was re-elected. Without Hoover, of course, the coup would have been easily exposed.
Seems like a pretty low class woman. Cashing in on the fees for services performed in the past. Think she looked Jackie and the staff in the eye when she worked with them?
Money could be the reason. Maybe she is angry at her husband. There is at least one 'good' reason. Maybe more.
Imagine letting your children and grandchildren know that you provided oral sex to a co-worker and did it in front of someone.
What does “Bong-Water” taste like?
I would presume that she is a Democrat. Liberals are proud of their sex scandals.
If she has a husband, he may want to get a paternity test.
You left out the aliens...
I prefer this version. Excuse the comercial...
How shameful. This grandmother who was a courtesean for a long gone womanizing president is giving painfully explicit details about her sexual affairs with him. Her family should be embarrassed and shamed. Jerry Springer for the Porter’s crowd. She must want the money.
I can’t imagine letting ANYONE know...much less my family.
But...maybe we are (thankfully) behind the times.
“liberals are proud of their sex scandals.”
O.k...I can get my mind around that. It makes sense.
This has nothing to do with Newt.
Your feeble attempt to make some kind of connection is uncalled for.
This isn’t D.U.
Waiting on Caroline’s comments.
A sarc note would have clarified nicely, for us dummies.
Weren’t me backhanding the Speaker. My post was questioning how the jump from sorryass JFK to Newt.
Reference my post #14, kind sir.
You lost track - my post was sent to your #14.
Don’t know how true it is, but according to some FBI guys I met in the early 70’s, Bobby was the bigger swordsman.
But he shared with Bobby.
The remark he would “rather his children were red than dead” mark him as a slimy traitor whose memory should not be worshipped.
Yeah, I know, right?
Like, I should know because I was, like, the grasssy knoll... man.
There I was in my tree togs, laying around minding my own business, then Hoover sent vicious cheerleaders out to do a rally cheer on me.
Stomped me flat.
Dude, it was horrible.
Imagine how the Fahnestock family feels. Not only did Tony die at an early age but now they find out she was cheating on him.
If so, I can’t help you; but, maybe a remedial reading comprehension course might.
Pretty much all the Kennedys, as far as I can see. Joe Kennedy, Sr., was a mobster, and over the years it seems to have run in the family. For several generations.
Drunken, womanizing, “I’m entitled” louts, just about all of them. JFK’s mother seems to have been a decent woman, and she managed to teach the brothers some manners, if not actually improve their behavior. So with the complicity of the media they got away with it.
What is wrong with you?
Is it a permanent condition?
Considering what she allowed Joe Sr. to do to her namesake, I gotta disagree. IMO, Eunice has made a career of doing penance for her parents' treatment of her sister.
...one seriously messed up family with enough ill gotten money to do as they damned well see fit.
True. Maybe I just should have left it that she taught them manners, how to behave as if they were just as good as those of the most select Bostonian birth, and not Chicago mobsters. And the press ate that up.
Now, of course, nobody is taught manners, so it’s less important whether you have any.
